Back in my day, dairy cows could live to be 20 years old. Today they’re lucky if they make it to their 5th birthday.
Back in my day, milk was a primary staple in the American home. It was known to be healthy and our children were encouraged to drink lots of it for the development of strong bones and teeth. Today milk is laced with chemicals and hormones and lots and lots of Americans are mysteriously “allergic” to it.
Back in my day, we didn’t talk much about hormones unless we were in the presence of a menopausal woman. Thanks to Monsanto our food chain sounds more like a bad science fiction movie. We consume foods filled with hormones and our children are ingesting endocrine disruptors in plastics and other toxic substances on a daily basis.
Monsanto’s answer to boosting milk production is to inject dairy cows with bovine growth hormones. Apparently their selling point to the commercial dairy farmer is that these hormones will increase milk production by 30%. I don’t know if I feel sorrier for the cows or for the humans.
The Japanese have a different (and healthier) answer to increasing milk production. After extensive research involving 19 commercial dairy farms, they studied the outcome of offering cows only electrolyzed reduced water (aka Kangen Water) to drink. What they found was shocking. Their research concluded that the cows drinking electrolyzed reduced water (ionized water) produced (on the average) 25% more milk. Furthermore, these cows had no mastitis which is the most common and most costly challenge for dairy farmers. Who needs Monsanto when you can increase milk production just by offering cows the RIGHT kind of water?
When is enough enough? How did we become so greedy that we’re willing to throw human (and animal) life under the bus for the sake of bigger profits? Our children and our children’s children deserve better than that, don’t you think?
I vote for the Japanese strategy of increasing the milk supply. It’s safe, its healthy, its more affordable and its humane. Is it any wonder that japan is #1 in the world for health and longevity and America is # 40?
